  • Garrett shared from The Battle of $9.99: How Apple, Amazon, and the Big Six Publishers Changed the E-Book Business Overnight (Kindle Single) by Andrew Richard Albanese
    The coup de grâce, publishers feared, would be Amazon eventually having the clout to lure big-name authors directly to the Kindle platform, cutting the publishers out of the loop entirely—total disintermediation.

  • Garrett shared from The Mobile Wave: How Mobile Intelligence Will Change Everything by Michael Saylor
    The Destruction of Paper: Paper has been the most common container of information on our planet.

A photograph from that period shows him at a family picnic with Ann; trim and coiffed, they’re wearing matching white cable-knit sweaters.
